benign until you consider I have to be introduced and likely engage in some type of polite conversation. Then there’s the unpleasant fact our home is a mess because my dad hoards stuff. It’s hard to clean with a bunch of stuff in your way! Anyway, this woman is coming to play ‘crib’ or ‘bridge’-can’t remember, and I’m dreading it b/c of the messiness. I feel ashamed and don’t want to meet the woman. I want to stay hidden and avoid interaction so I don’t have to experience acute embarrassment. Why couldn’t he have just gone down the street to her house and played cards there instead? Hmm, maybe her place is messy too! Oy vey! πŸ˜›

  1. if she’s a true friend she won’t care or she’ll suggest to help clean it up! Sunday is feeling like a spring clean… even though it’s still Fall where you are…

  2. that’s a tough one 😦 xo

  3. that sucks. Maybe you could make plans to be out during that time. πŸ˜‰

  4. Good luck my friend, that’s always a strange situation to be in evenin your own home. But you can do it, make nice for a minute or two. Then bail. Of course you know the trick to success in these scenarios is take control. Be nice day hi chat chat, then leave to your space. Then before asked or beckoned make a pop in visit, short brief just long enough and then your off again but all done on your time when you felt ready. πŸ˜‰

  5. One can only wander!! Lol
